SCOUT­ING THE LO­BOS

Albuquerque Journal - - SPORTS -

The Lo­bos’ con­fi­dence is rid­ing high af­ter their im­pres­sive 50-14 win at UNLV last week. There weren’t too many neg­a­tives last week, es­pe­cially on of­fense and de­fense. On of­fense, the Lo­bos were ex­tremely bal­anced with 252 yards rush­ing and 250 yards pass­ing. Quar­ter­back Sher­iron Jones led the team in pass­ing (250 yards) and rush­ing (70) against the Rebels. Se­nior run­ning back Ty­rone Owens leads the way in the back­field, where ju­nior Ah­mari Davis also con­trib­utes. Last week, Zah­neer Shuler showed that he can use his power and 6-foot-1, 232-pound frame to his ad­van­tage, es­pe­cially near the goal line. He scored two touch­downs last week, one from 2 yards out and the other from a yard away.
